Welcome to Ning

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold is as pictures of silver.(Prov.25:11) It is so important to speak the right words to people at the right time to produce the right results. When you think of apples of gold in pictures of silver, then you are thinking of wealth and excellence. When we speak wisdom into the lives of others we are making them wealthy. Therefore we must seek God for He is the source of all wisdom and He will give us just the right words needed at the right time.

  • #Follow after charity and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy. For he that speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification and exhortation and comfort. He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church. I would that ye spoke with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interprets, that the church may receive edifying. I Cor. 14:1-5

    Paul is challenging the Corinthians to follow after love and to desire spiritual gifts. If you speak in a tongue you should pray that you can interpret for the edifying of the church. The goal is to edify, exhort, and comfort the church to the glory of God. Today in many Pentecostal churches they do not interpret and the body of Christ is not edified. Desire spiritual gifts such as prophesy and follow after love, so that the body of Christ will be nit together in the bond of peace.

  • #Charity never faileth, but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought like a child, but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now, we see through a glass, darkly, but then face to face: now I know in part, but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three, but the greatest of these is charity. I Cor. 13:8-13

    Paul goes on to tell us that love never fails, but prophecies, they shall fail and knowledge it shall vanish away. In these imperfect bodies of ours, we have limitations. but when he that is perfect has come, who is Jesus, then we will have complete knowledge. We enjoy our childhood, but when we grow up to maturity, we put away childish things. We now have faith, hope, and love, these three, but the greatest of these is love, Agape which is the love of God. We are thankful for our families, and this great nation. God bless America, the land of the brave and the free. 

  • #Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels and have not charity, I have become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy and understand all mysteries and all knowledge and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor and though I give my body to be burned and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity suffereth long  and is kind, charity envieth not; charity vaunteth, not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, endureth all things. I Cor. 13:1-7

    Paul in the previous chapter said to desire the greatest gift and yet if I have all of that, but lack love, then it profits me nothing. Love is the greatest fruit of the Spirit and we must make sure that we have that fruit operating in the body of Christ. Love the Lord with all thy heart, mind, and soul; then love thy neighbor as thyself. Love does no harm to his neighbor. Jesus said a new commandment give me that ye love one another as I have loved you. Every one has friendship love, but Jesus said to even love your enemies. Agape love is the only love that allows us to love like God and pray for those who would despitefully use us. That is why Jesus prayed on the Cross, Father forgives them, for they know not what they do.

  • #Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? But covet earnestly the best gifts and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way. I Cor. 12:28-31

    There are many gifts, so covet earnestly the best gifts such as prophecy. Yet show I unto you a more excellent way. Thank God for the opportunity to serve the body of Christ and be welcomed into the Kingdom of God on that great day.

  • #And whether one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now ye are the body of Christ and members in particular. And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. I Cor. 12:26-28

    There should be a unity of the spirit and if one member suffers all the members suffer. We have been gifted in the body first the apostles, next prophets, teachers, miracle workers, gifts of healing and governments and interpretations of tongues. We are to use these gifts for the glory of God in the body of Christ.

  • #But now are there members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: And those members of the body, which we think to be less honorable, upon these we bestow more abundant honor and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. For our comely parts have no need, but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honor to the part which lacked: That there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care one for another. I Cor. 12:20-25 

    Thank God for placing us in the body as it has pleased him and given more honor to the parts of the body that are not as beautiful. Thus there should be no divisions in the body, for we are all one in Christ and therefore must love one another just as Christ loves us. This Thanksgiving, take time to show the love of Christ to his body by lifting the spirits of someone that is suffering and lonely.  

     

     

     

  • #If the foot shall say because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. I Cor. 12:15-18

    For God, the Father has placed each one of us into the body of Christ as it has pleased him. All the members of the body play an important role and therefore we cannot exclude any member as unimportant. Thank God for his unsearchable wisdom for placing us in the body as he has to his own glory. May the Lord cause us to work in the body by the unity of the Holy Spirit to his own glory Amen.

     

  • #For as the body is one and hath many members and all the members of that one body, being many are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many. I Cor. 12:12-14

    We are many just as the body is one and all the members of that one body are one, so also is Christ. Therefore we must endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. For Christ has baptized us all into his body by the Spirit. Let us give honor to all the members since we all belong to Christ and let there be no divisions among us. Let not the eye say to the tongue I do not need you, for both are needed for the body to function. Thus all the members of the body are vitally necessary for the glory of God and that is why he has placed us in the body of Christ.

  • #For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom: to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit. To another faith by the same Spirit: to another gifts of healing by the same Spirit: To another the working of miracles: to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kind of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. I Cor.12:8-11

    There is one Lord, one Spirit, one Baptism and one God of all who gives to all that are born in the family of God gifts differing one from the other. We can thank the Spirit he has gifted us according to the will of God so that we can use our gifts to the glory of God and for the good of the body of Christ.

  • #And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. I Cor. 12:5-7

    There are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. There are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. God gives the manifestation of the Spirit to every man to profit withal. He does not discriminate in the gifts of the Spirit so thank God for the measure given to you. We all profit from the measure of the Spirit given for the benefit of the body of Christ.
